Scholarship Description: The fellowship program invites roughly twenty scholars each year to conduct research on a specific theme within the various fields of Judaic studies. Each fellow is given an office at the Herbert D. Katz Center for Advanced Judaic Studies in downtown Philadelphia, and receives research support from the Katz Center’s staff and librarians. During the course of the year the fellows work on their individual projects and meet at weekly seminars to discuss their on-going research in the company of their colleagues. Intellectual camaraderie–sharing and mutual learning alongside scholars with diverse but focused interests–is the essence of the Katz Center’s program.
